    Are you sure about that 32-bit range?

    Whoops. Should be 32-bit = 3.4E-38 to +3.4E+38 and 64-bit = 1.7E-308 to +1.7E+308. Good catch.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I used $1 bills instead of $100 bills because I wanted it to be relatable to this crowd. SJBH.

    I understand. And speak for yourself, by the way. I make close to what welders make!

    Still, you haven't told us how many dollar bills you are stacking.

    3.65E+18 light years.

    Can't help being a math nerd sometimes.

    If it were 100 dollar bills, it would be 3.65E+16 light years.

    So I was walking down the street in College Park, Maryland, and as we were passing some dude, I nodded to him in a friendly manner. He goes off on me and says, "don't say hi to me! You don't know me, boy!"
